FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - In a story March 21 about three students arrested at George Mason University, The Associated Press reported erroneously one of the items found in a dorm room. Among the items were a mortar and pestle, not a pedestal.

A corrected version of the story is below:

3 students arrested at George Mason U. on drug, bomb charges

Court documents say three students at George Mason University have been arrested after alleged bomb-making materials were found in a dorm room

FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Court documents say three students at George Mason University have been arrested after alleged bomb-making materials were found in a dorm room.

The documents say George Mason University Police officers went to the room Wednesday night after it was reported that flames were shooting out of the window.

Search warrants say police found a leafy green substance, match books, shaved match heads, a mortar and pestle, lighter fluid, hand sanitizer candles and a PVC pipe.

The documents say investigators reported the items could be combined to make explosives.

According to a police statement, two people were arrested on drug and alcohol-related charges; the third person was charged with possession of bomb-making materials. Police did not identify them.
